Walkability Index

The Walkability Index dataset characterizes every Census 2010 block group in the U.S. based on its relative walkability. Walkability depends upon characteristics of the built environment that influence the likelihood of walking being used as a mode of travel. The Walkability Index is based on the EPA's previous data product, the Smart Location Database (SLD). Walkabilty has been linked to increased physical activity and stronger social ties within the communities, promoting better health outcomes than less walkable areas.

Querying over HTTP

Splitgraph serves as an HTTP API that lets you run SQL queries directly on this data to power Web applications. For example:

curl \
    -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
{"sql": "
    SELECT *
    FROM \"memphistn-gov/walkability-index-fudf-qubq\".\"walkability_index\"
    LIMIT 100 

See the Splitgraph documentation for more information.
